Stayed in room 401 at the top - beware, there's no lift. Fantastic location only a few minutes from the Lanes, and a comfortable room, if a little small. Bathroom has shutter-type doors instead of a fully-closing door so not great for privacy. The staff were super-efficient and helpful and the parking next door is really useful. I even got...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 January 2017 via mobile

My boyfriend and I visited this hotel for one night in December. We stayed in the Yin Yang room which I would highly recommend. The view is amazing, and it's a lovely place to watch the sunset over Brighton's seafront, especially from the free standing bath in the room. Perfect for a special occasion or a treat.

It was quite disappointing when we are paying £300 per night to drive up and think that the taxi has the wrong hotel - there is no way a hotel of this supposed standard would have a used bathtub sitting in the driveway. There was a trash bin right outside our window that was used by vans which would drive...

Spent a night here in February. Warm welcome, very friendly and informal. The room we had was small but well appointed and the bed was extremely comfortable and good quality. Didn't eat here but used the bar which had a very knowledgeable and friendly bartender. Would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful hotel the rooms are very stylish and romantic love the free standing bath. This was our second visit to Drakes and will not be our last. The margaritas were superb and hit the spot! Breakfast was lovely. The staff and hotel atmosphere is excellent thank you for a lovely stay.

My husband and I stayed on Saturday 11th February. Our first stay at this particular hotel in Brighton, although we have stayed at many others. It is now our favourite! It is a relaxed, friendly hotel, with quirky bedrooms, ours had a double ended bath in front of the bay window. You can't see the sea views when you are...

Really nice boutique hotel, good location and very handy being able to reserve a parking space on the front drive. We had the 5 course taster menu which was fantastic and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend you try a cocktail the bar man is great and is very passionate about his trade. Only let down was...

This was my first time visiting Drakes Hotel and I was very pleasantly surprised. Clean quirky room with a double bath next to the bed. The room was a little on the small side, but I had booked pretty last minute so was not complaining. The bed was comfortable with immaculately clean linens and towels. No hairdryer was a minus....

My partner and I had always wanted to stay here although on this occasion the only available room was the city facing bijou room ( our dream is to have a sea view feature room on return next time) but we were not let down. Trendy and luxurious are two words to start with here. We just wanted to bathe...
